Abstract : A study was made to characterize an emulsified JP-4 fuel which, if proven to be operational for jet engines, can greatly increase aircraft safety. The study includes the measurement of the rheological properties, namely, yield point and apparent viscosity, over a range of temperatures and as a function of mixing time and aging. The droplet diameter of the fuel before and after alteration (by additional mixing) and after aging was also established.
